BUOYED UP: A HISTORY OF FIREBOATS IN THE LONDON FIRE BRIGADE
Thursday 4 December
5.30pm-7.30pm  at London Fire Brigade Museum, Winchester
House, 94A Southwark Bridge Road; £10; book via 020 8555
1200 x. 39894 museum@london-fire.gov.uk
An illustrated lecture on the history of fire boats used by
the London Fire Brigade. Fire boats have played a crucial
part in the Brigade, from steam engines mounted onto a barge
in the nineteenth century to the current ultra modern
vessels, Fireflash and Firedart, that combine the role of
fire boat with that of a fast rescue craft. The lecture will
particularly focus on the Massey Shaw fireboat, commissioned
in 1935 and was one of the most powerful fire boats used by
the Brigade. The Massey Shaw was used throughout the Second
World War and she was decommissioned in 1970. The Massey
Shaw was also one of the little ships that travelled to
Dunkirk and rescued hundreds of soldiers and sailors. The
lecture will be led by one of the museum's experts who is
also a member of the Massey Shaw Education Trust, and has
been involved in the restoration of the Massey Shaw fire
boat into a working museum. The lecture will be held in the
grand setting of Winchester House, residence of the first
chief officer of the London Fire Brigade (LFB), Captain
Shaw, now home to the LFB Museum. The talk will be followed
by refreshments and an opportunity to visit the museum.
